     Walter Chiles Jr. was born in 1630 at Middlesex, England.5 He married Mary Page, daughter of Col.

Walter Chiles Jr. was buried after 15 November 1671 at Chiles Family Cemetery, Jamestown, James City Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave:
     Birth:      1630, England
     Death:      Nov. 15, 1671, Jamestown, James City County, Virginia, USA
     NOTE: The early genealogical literature concerning Walter Chiles mistakenly concluded that Walter Chiles I and his son, Walter Chiles II (Jr.), were a single entity (1608-1671) which has led to much confusion in the genealogical literature. This has been proven to be incorrect and is confirmed by several accepted sources including, "A Timeline for Structures at Jamestown Related to the Chiles Family" by Lee Pelham Cotton, 2006. (Lee Pelham Cotton was a Park Ranger for the National Park Service when he wrote this article.)
     Walter Chiles II was born about 1630 in England and as a youngster accompanied his parents, Walter and Elizabeth (______) Chiles I, when they emigrated to Jamestown, Virginia between the dates, 24 July 1637 and 01 March 1638. (See FAG memorial of Walter Chiles I for an explanation of these dates.) It is reported that the family emigrated to Virginia aboard a ship owned and outfitted by Walter Chiles I. The name of this ship is uncertain but has been purported to have been the "Fame of Virginia" (See FAG memorial of Walter Chiles I for a discussion of this ship.) William Chiles, the younger brother of Walter Chiles II, also accompanied his parents on the voyage to Virginia and both sons were listed as headrights in 1638 for their father (Ref: Nugent, Nell M., "Cavaliers and Pioneers", 1934, pp103-4). No further record is found of William Chiles. He probably either died shortly after arriving in Virginia or returned to England.
     In the genealogical literature there is confusion as to whether Walter Chiles I or his son, Walter Chiles II, was referred to as Lieutenant Colonel. Which ever case, it was probably an honorary title. Walter Chiles II inherited his father's estate in 1653. The estate included the "Kemp House" in Jamestown (the first brick dwelling in America) which Walter Chiles I purchased from Governor Sir William Berkeley in 1649 for 26,000 pounds of tobacco. Elizabeth Chiles, Walter Chiles II's mother who retained her dower interest, continued to live in the "Kemp House" after the death of her husband. Walter Chiles I also owned 70 acres of land at Black Point, located near the easternmost tip of Jamestown Island which also was inherited by his son, Walter II. (Cavaliers and Pioneers, by Nugent, Vol. 2, p. 112). "Black Point" was the first part of Jamestown Island viewed when sailing up the James River. The more than 1600 acres owned by Walter Chiles I located along the Appomattox River in Charles City County were included in the estate as well. In November 1855, Walter II of James City sold 813 acres in Charles City Co., VA along the Appomattox River for a valuable sum of tobacco. This is the same land patented by Walter Chiles I and re-patented by his son, Walter Chiles II (Beverly Fleet "Virginia Colonial Abstracts", Vol. 10, p24).
     Walter Chiles II married first, Mary Page, daughter of wealthy York Co., VA merchant, Colonel John Page, the Councillor (Ref: "Virginia Carolorum, The Colony Under the Rule of Charles the First and Second A. D. 1625 — A. D. 1685" by Edward Duffield Neill, 1886, p232). The couple lived in the "Kemp House" with Elizabeth Chiles, the widow of Walter Chiles I who retained her dower interest, for a while before building their own 38 X 24 foot house sometime in the 1650s. While living in the "Kemp House", after his marriage to Mary Page, Walter II added on to the house, increasing its size by 37 feet (Ambler Manuscripts, #24, Library of Congress, Personal Papers, V.S.L., Acc. No.33142). Their own house was also of brick construction and was located directly in front of "Kemp House" on Jamestown Island. This new house most probably consisted of two rooms, heated by a fireplace in the west gable (Ref: "A Timeline for Structures at Jamestown Related to the Chiles Family" by Lee Pelham Cotton, 2006. (Lee Pelham Cotton was a Park Ranger for the National Park Service when he wrote this article.)
     Mary (Page) Chiles' death date is unknown but she died before her parents and did not live to see her children grown. Her widower husband, Walter Chiles II, married secondly Susanna (______) whose maiden name is in question. It has been suggested to have been "Brooks" in the genealogical literature without supporting documentation (Ref: Joanne Webb Chiles Eakin, "Walter Chiles of Jamestown", 1983, p.10 [Out of print]). The "Jamestowne Society" presently does not recognize nor accept a maiden name for Susanna Chiles, second wife of Walter Chiles II. Walter Chiles II died on 15 Nov 1671 (date accepted by the "Jamestowne Society") and like his father, there is speculation that Walter II's short life was related to the very unhealthy conditions he experience from residing on Jamestown Island. Susanna Chiles wed secondly about August 1672 to Reverend James Wadding, the rector of the church at Jamestown. They sold the lot containing the "Kemp House" and the house built adjacent to it by Walter Chiles II and his 1st wife, Mary Page, on 20 Nov 1673 for seven thousand pounds of tobacco, a surprisingly small sum (Ambler Manuscript, #24, Library of Congress, Personal Papers, V.S.L., Acc. No.33142). Following the sale, they moved to Gloucester Co., VA where James Wadding was rector of Petsworth Parish until 1677. The purchaser of the houses from the Rev. James and Susanna (Chiles) Waddings was Col. John Page, the father of Walter Chiles II's first wife, Mary Page. As mentioned above, he was a York Co., VA merchant and resident of Bruton Parish at Middle Plantation (the site of present-day Williamsburg), where he dwelt in a brick house he had built in 1662. Sometime before September 1676, Col. John Page razed the "Kemp House" and built a new structure.
     NOTE: As noted above, the Rev. James Wadding and his wife, Susanna Chiles Wadding, moved to Gloucester County, where he was the minister of Petsworth Parish. This was the time of Bacon's Rebellion. Wadding was a loyalist and refused to take the oath of allegiance exacted by Bacon, and encouraged others to refuse. Thereupon, Bacon "committed him to the Guarde, telling him that it was his place to preach in the church, not in the camp. In the first, he may say what he pleased, but in the last, he (Wadding) was to say no more than what should please him (Bacon): unless he could fight to better purpose than he could preach." Not long after this, Bacon was taken very sick with the fever and Rev. Wadding was the minister who attended him in his last illness. Bacon died October 26, 1676 at Major Pate's house on Poropotank Creek in Gloucester County.
     Walter Chiles II served as churchwarden of James City Parish [Church of England] (Ref. "Old Churches, Ministers and Families of Virginia" by William Meade, 1910) and served as a justice of James City County in 1664. He also served in the House of Burgesses, sessions 1658, 1659, 1660 and 1663. (Hening, William Waller, "Statutes at Large: being a collection of all the laws of Virginia from the first session of the legislature in the year 1619", Vol. I, 1969, pp258, 322)
     On Apr. 4, 1671, the Council Journal records a General Court meeting at James City. Walter Chiles II appeared on behalf of his sons, John and Henry Chiles, patenting 1500 acres in Westmoreland County, VA. (Ref: McIlwaine, H.R., "Minutes of the Council and General Court of Colonial Virginia", 1622-1632 (Richmond, Virginia, 1924), p245.
     The will of Walter Chiles I has not been found, but it known that he made a will from a 20 Nov 1673 deed drawn up by Susanna Chiles Wadding, the widow of Walter Chiles II, to sell the "Kemp House", as noted above, to Col. John Page, the father of Walter Chiles II's first wife, Mary Page. To identify the "Kemp House" that had been bought by her father-in-law, Walter Chiles I, and passed down to her husband, Walter Chiles II, now deceased, the deed identified Walter Chiles I, the father, as having died "in the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred fifty three". This also confirms that it was Walter Chiles I who originally purchased the house in Jamestown (Ref. Amblar Manuscript No. 24, Library of Congress, Personal Papers, V.S.L., Acc. No.33142).
     The children of Walter and Mary (Page) Chiles II were (Walter's 1st marriage):
     1) Elizabeth Chiles - She was probably named after her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth (______) Chiles, wife of Walter Chiles I. She married Henry Tyler before 1683 and was the great-grandmother of John Tyler, the 10th President of the United States (POTUS).
     2) John Chiles- He was probably named after his maternal grandfather, Col. John Page, father of Mary (Page) Chiles. John was a wealthy man by the standards of the time, and he was closely connected to leaders of the colony. In 1700-02 he was part owner, with William Byrd II (1674-1744) and William Randolph II (1681-1742), of the sloop "Westover". In 1702 he was mace bearer of the House of Burgesses. He moved to what is now King William County and owned substantial land, securing patents to 1245 acres there in 1690-91. John was a Justice in King William Co., VA in 1714 and was dead by 1724, since Eleanor, his second wife, d/o Henry Webber, had married Edward Hickman by that date.
NOTE: In his will of March 5, 1687, Col. John Page mentions his grandson John Chiles, as well as his "grandsonne John Tyler, sonne of my grand-daughter Elizabeth Tyler." Elizabeth Chiles had married Henry Tyler of Middle Plantation, and thus became the ancestress of President John Tyler.(Ref: See source #1 below).
     The child of Walter and Susanna (______) Chiles II (Walter's 2nd marriage) was Henry Chiles. There is no evidence as to his exact birth date but it was before 1671 and probably in the "Kemp House" at James Cittie (Jamestown). Henry spent at least part of his youth in Gloucester Co., VA as his mother, Susanna Chiles Wadding, and his stepfather, Reverend James Wadding, moved there in 1673. Rev. Waddling remained rector of Petsworth Parish until 1677. Henry Chiles married twice and had a daughter named Anne Chiles by his second wife, Mary (______). Anne Chiles married Henry Terrell on 08 Nov 1734 at Caroline Co., VA (References. "The Colonial Genealogist", Vol XI, Nos. 1&2, 39-40 Issue, 1982, p8; "Richmond, William and Timothy Terrell, Colonial Virginians", Compiled by Celeste Jane Terrell Barnhill, 1934, pp128/29.) Henry and Anne (Chiles) Terrell's daughter, Elizabeth "Betty" Ann Terrell (1738-1773) married Zachariah Moorman (1732-1787) on 12 Jan 1755 at Caroline Co., VA. Zachariah Moorman is recognized by both the SAR and DAR as a patriot of the American Revolutionary War. NOTE: This scenario is accepted by the "Jamestowne Society".
     Henry Chiles died before 27 Feb 1719 in Hanover Co., VA.
     Like his father, Walter Chiles I, both Walter Chiles II and his second wife, Susanna (_______) Chiles, are qualifying ancestors for membership in the "Jamestowne Society". The explanation for Susanna Chiles being a qualifying ancestor for membership is her documented ownership of land on Jamestown Island.

III. John Page

As the palisade fell into disrepair, Middle Plantation grew with the development of other plantations on the high, relatively well-drained land atop the peninsula. Wealthy "gentry" moved into the region, among them the young John Page. He arrived in York County in
1655, a man from a prosperous English family, who was determined to make his way in Virginia. He was part of the second permanently-settled generation of Virginia’s elite.

Born in England in 1627, Page came to Virginia twenty-three years later (Page 1972:15). He soon came to prominence in Virginia by acquiring land and rising through a series of political offices. In March 1654/5, he was a member of the House of Burgesses for York County.
On November 12, 1677, he appeared in the records as the "high sherriffe of Yorke County," a position he held only briefly since less than a year later he was known as the "former sheriff of York Co." (YCR, DOW 6:21,44). His fellow York County residents elected him to membership on the Bruton Parish vestry. Rising above local county offices, he achieved an appointment to the Council of State in 1680.

Page not only built up his home plantation, he also acquired land throughout the colony. In 1683, he came into possession of a tract of land in James City County known as Neck of Land. This land had originally belonged to John’s brother Matthew. When Matthew died it was bequeathed to his son Matthew Page. John Page acquired the land when he paid 140 pounds for buying his nephew out of slavery in Algiers "& cloathing him att London" (YCR, DOW 9:103). Page also owned land in New Kent County. In 1672, he had patented more than three thousand acres of land in two parcels. At least part of the land had become a working plantation called Mehixton by the time Page wrote his will in 1686/7. At that time Page had servants, slaves, livestock and household goods at Mehixton (Nugent 1977:30; YCR, DOW 9:103).

John Page’s other substantial land holdings were in Middle Plantation. These lands included much of what was to become Williamsburg. His Middle Plantation tract included present-day Duke of Gloucester Street, Nicholson Street, and part of Francis Street. In 1683 he patented three hundred thirty acres of land in two tracts.

This property, which Page purchased in 1655, was probably covered in grassland with trees surrounding the ravines and dotting the terrain. Botanical remains recovered from kiln-related features dating to the 1660s included evidence of tulip polar as well as grasses that are common in meadows and along the edges of cultivated fields.

IV. The Page House

The Page plantation was similar to others in Virginia. It included fences, ditches, and activity areas that reflected the daily routine of a colonial homestead. The Page estate also held elements that would have been recognizable to well-bred contemporaries back in England. John Page had the means to build in the manner of the English gentry and he drew on memories of the high-style English landscape to order his world in Virginia. John Page’s house was extremely well built, constructed entirely of brick, architecturally sophisticated, and spacious, particularly when compared to most Virginia houses. The main section of the house measured 36 feet 9 inches by 21 feet 11 inches and was supplemented by two towers that measured 13 feet 5 ½ inches by 13 feet 11 inches each.

These towers on the front and back, called porch and stair towers, gave the house a cross shape . This layout was well known in England and was reproduced in Virginia, notably in Arthur Allen’s 1665 home, "Bacon’s Castle," in Surry County. It was also an important early house plan in the English colonies of Bermuda and Ireland. There, too, prominent men built solid cross-shaped dwellings. Porch and stair towers distinguished the interior and exterior appearances of a house. Projecting off the house, these towers created a visual presense of the owners’ prominence. On the interior, towers created extra rooms that made the house more private and acted as a weather barrier. This style grew in popularity towards the end of the seventeenth century, but cross-plan houses became "less fashionable"during the second half of the eighteenth century as the added rooms and central hallways of Georgian-style houses became more popular (Upton 1980).

The Page house employed a common two-room floor plan that featured a large hall, entered from the porch tower, and a smaller parlor/chamber that was entered from the hall. The hall served as a multipurpose room where a variety of everyday activities took place. The parlor was a more private room where the owners usually slept and displayed their more valuable items. It is also where important visitors would have been entertained. The top floor would have served as sleeping quarters, most likely for children, servants, or slaves. Below the first floor was a full cellar which was normally used for storage, but in seventeenth-century England these spaces sometimes served other functions; such as a place where men could gather to drink. Those who could afford it took great care in the appearance and layout of their cellars.

The house interior shows large amounts of plaster from the upper floors indicating that both first- floor rooms were plastered. The detail Page put into the rest of his house was also apparent in the cellar, which contained four unheated rooms: one under each tower and two in the main section. The absence of hearths in the cellar implies that cooking activities took place elsewhere. The foundation walls were principally laid in Flemish bond, characterized by the use of alternating headers and stretchers in the same row, and all the mortar joints between the bricks were scored or "struck" to give the walls a finished look. Most cellars in Virginia were neither laid in Flemish bond nor finished.

Only one other seventeenth-century house, Arlington in Northhampton County, and two
eighteenth-century houses, Battersea and Belle Grove in King George County, are known to have had struck Flemish bond brickwork in their cellars (pers. comm., Edward Chappell, 1996).

Square ceramic paving tiles were used to floor both towers, and in the main part of the cellar a very elaborate contoured brick floor was employed that incorporated bricks placed on their sides with ones that were laid flat. This design performed two main functions. First, the contoured floor served to keep items stored in the cellar dry by funneling water into sumps. Keeping cellars dry in colonial Tidewater required both ingenuity and effort. Second, portions of the floor, adjacent to the foundation wall, also served as a low shelf, designed to keep things dry when water did find its way into the cellar. The craftsmanship used in constructing the cellar and the elaborate design demonstrate that Page was concerned with making both the public and nonpublic areas of his house sophisticated.

The roof was originally covered with ceramic roofing tiles manufactured at Page’s brick and tile kiln, described later. The small number of tile fragments retrieved from the cellar fill implies that most if not all of the tiles were replaced during later renovations of the house. Not only did tiles wear out, but oak pegs used to hold the tiles in place would eventually rot and fail, requiring the replacement of the roof. Page’s house stood for approximately seventy years, sufficient time for either the tiles or the pegs to give out. Evidence from the window leads that held the casement windows together suggests the windows may have been replaced as many as three times.

The original 1662 windows were replaced sometime in the 1670s with leads that were impressed with a date of 1669 . No dated leads from the original 1662 set were recovered, but numerous 1669 leads were found in features that were created while the house was standing indicating that some windows were later replaced a third time. No dated leads associated with the third set were found during any of the excavations.

Possibly natural disaster or civil unrest caused Page to replace windows. Secretary Thomas Ludwell reported that 10,000 homes in Virginia and Maryland had been destroyed by a 1668 hurricane (Morton 1960). In 1676, Nathaniel Bacon’s men plundered the homes and estates of prominent men who remained loyal to Governor Berkeley. After the rebellion Page attached his name to a list of people seeking compensation for losses incurred during the uprising. Page’s house appears to have avoided extensive damage, however, since he hosted Berkeley before the Governor returned to his devastated Green Springs Plantation after the rebellion (Washburn 1957).

V. The Cartouche

The elaborations on the outside of the house were also unique. Excavation revealed water table bricks and a number of other carved and molded bricks that once adorned the windows, doors, and roof line. The most intriguing find was a set of five bricks that featured a raised heart-shaped symbol and seven characters . The letters "P" and "A" and the date 1662 are the initials of John and Alice Page and the date the house was constructed.
Together these bricks would have formed a diamond shaped shield or cartouche that was probably located over the front door.The bricks were carved in bas-relief. Paint analysis
revealed the background was originally painted off-white while the raised characters were burnt sienna. At a later date, when much of the original color had faded, the raised portion was repainted in a sloppy fashion with a white lead-based paint . Examples of cartouches with raised characters like this one are almost nonexistent for this time period in English North America. To date this is the only known example of this type of carved brickwork in the southern colonies.

Other houses do have cartouches but they are etched, not raised. An example of this
can be found at Berkeley Plantation in Charles City County, where the initials of Benjamin and Ann Harrison IV and a heart sit above the date 1726. The brickwork that adorned Page’s house is typical of the Artisan Mannerist movement that developed in England during the reign of Charles I (1625-1649). This style featured very elaborate brickwork which included molding, lugged sills, and curvilinear gables. The techniques used to create such ornate brickwork became possible in the 1630s when the skills of brick-makers developed to such a degree that they could construct a house without hiring a mason to do the ornamental parts. This resulted in the increased use of brick in England (Summerson 1953).

     Walter Chiles Sr. was born on 1 May 1572 at Wrington Parish, Somerset, England.3 He was born circa 1608 at Bristol, Gloucestershire, England;      per Eakin [1983:1]: "The first mention of the original Chiles emigrant to Virginia is found in the records of the High Court of Admiralty Examinations in England. In the record of Examination No. 301 dated 24 July 1637 the Witness was Walter Chiles of Bristol, a clothworker aged 29 who signed his own name to the document."
     Roberts [2012:30] says he was born "prob. Bristol, England c. 1608."4,5 He married Elizabeth Maury before 1630 at England; Their son Walter Jr. was born ca 1630
per Eakin [1983:4]: "The wife of Walter Chiles, Sr. was elizabeth. So far this writer has been unable to ascertain her maiden name. In a letter written 7 Feb 1978 Mrs. Virginia W. Austin (State Chairman, Genealogical Records Committee, Virginia D. A. R.) states, 'All the records I have indicatre he married Elizabeth Maury, but there is in the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century file forlder for Chiles a notation where someone had found the marriage of a Walter Chiles to an Elizabreth Sanders June 1630 in Bristol Cathdral.' The William and Mary Quarterly mentions there was a second marriage to an Alice Luckin. I find no reference to an Alice Luckin Chiles in the U. S. Records."3,6,5
Walter Chiles Sr. died in 1653 at Jamestown, James City Co., Virginia, USA; Eakin mentions that both Walter Sr and his son Walter Jr "died young" and attributes this to the location of James City, surrounded with water and lacking fresh water wells.3,6
Walter Chiles Sr. was buried after 6 July 1863 at Chiles Family Cemetery, Jamestown, James City Co., Virginia, USA; from Find A Grave:
     Birth:      1608, Bristol, England
     Death:      Jul. 6, 1653, Jamestown, James City County, Virginia, USA
     Walter Chiles I's (1608-1653) English family was from Crowle, Worcestershire and Bristol, England.
     1) Great-Grandparents: His great-grandfather was likely Richard Childe who was buried at Crowle, Worcestershire on the 6th of May 1540. His great-grandmother was possibly Isabel Childes who was buried on the 10th day of February 1545/6 or Margaret Childes listed as deceased in October 1547 in Crowle.
     2) Grandparents: William Childes married at Crowle on 21 January 1543/4 to Alice (______). William Childes was buried the 24th of May 1563 at Crowle and Ales Chiles, "widdow was buried ye 7th day of January 1598/9 at Crowle". The above includes all of the known instances of the Childes/Childs/Child family of Crowle, Worcestershire in the Crowle Parish Registers.
     3) Parents: John Childs, a textile merchant, one of three siblings, was baptized at Crowle, Worcestershire on 20 October 1555. John Childe and Katherine Johnes were married on 12 Jan 1582 at Temple Parish (Bristol). Katherine Childe died of the plague about 1602. John Childe married secondly Alice Wellstedd on 06 Feb 1603 at Temple Parish (Bristol). She was the mother of Walter Chiles I (1608-1653) who was baptized in the church of Saint Mary Redcliffe in Bristol, England on 20 March 1609. The last record of John Childes alive was 1628. It appears significant that the last three records of John Chiles in 1605, 1628 and 1632/3 spelled his name "Chiles", without the "d" as is the spelling of Walter Chiles I, his son. In 1632/3, in his High Court of Admiralty (HCA) deposition (see below) of 24 July 1637 and in almost all of the records of Virginia his name is spelled "Chiles". (Reference: "A complete Revision of the Ancestry of Walter Chiles (1608-1653) of Bristol, England and Jamestowne, Virginia" by Arden H. Brame, Jr., 2014, pp110, 111, 114 ("The English Genealogist of The Augustan Society").
     NOTE: The early genealogical literature concerning Walter Chiles mistakenly concluded that Walter Chiles I and his son, Walter Chiles II, were a single entity (1608-1671) which has led to much confusion in the genealogical literature. This has been proven to be incorrect and is confirmed by several accepted sources including, "A Timeline for Structures at Jamestown Related to the Chiles Family" by Lee Pelham Cotton, 2006. (Lee Pelham Cotton was a Park Ranger for the National Park Service when he wrote this article.)
     In the Public Record Office in London, among the "High Court of Admiralty (HCA) Libels and Depositions" was found the record of "Examination No. 301, Vol. 53" which stated: "Case of Phillip Luxon (Luxton) versus William Harris dated 24 July 1637. Deposition of Walter Chiles of Bristol, clothworker, aged 29 or thereabouts, examined on behalf of William Harris and Nicholas Jollye." (Significantly, Walter Chiles I signed his own name to the document.)
     "This deponent (Walter Chiles I) was a passenger in the ship "Blessing" out of Falmouth and was employed by William Harris and Nicholas Jollye (merchants) to be the assistant to the witness, HENRY TUTTON, then chief purser of the said ship, to help sell and dispose of their goods in Virginia. Walter was employed to serve 12 months." [Walter Chiles gave evidence in his deposition about the cargo including the gin and whiskey that the Master of the "Blessing", Phillip Luxon, was accused of drinking during the voyage]. The "Blessing" returned from Virginia to England via Kinsale in Ireland and Falmouth in Cornwall. Chiles served on her from 26 Sep 1636 to 24 Jun 1637 and the ship stayed 14 weeks in Jamestown, Virginia. Note: This record confirms that Walter Chiles I was born about 1608 in England and that he was the same Walter Chiles who emigrated to Virginia in 1637/8 as he lists as one of his headrights in his first grant of land (01 Mar 1638) one HENRY TUTTON, his former boss, the chief purser on the "Blessing".
     Walter Chiles must have been very impressed with the future possibilities of this new land after his brief visit to Jamestown aboard the "Blessing". Shortly after his return to England in 1637, he and family emigrated to Virginia, reportedly in his own ship (which could possibly have been the "Fame of Virginia" mentioned later in this narrative) sometime between 24 July 1637 when he gave his HCA deposition in England and 01 March 1638 when his and his family's headrights were recorded. The first record we have of Chiles actually living in Virginia was recorded in Nugent, Nell M., "Cavaliers and Pioneers", 1934, pp103-4 as: "Walter Chiles, 400 acres, Charles Citty Co. (now Prince George County), 01 Mar 1638, West upon Apomattuck [sic] River, North upon the land of Edward Tunstall and South toward the falls. 200 acres for the personal adventure of himself, his wife, Elizabeth Chiles, his sons: Walter and William, and 200 acres for transportation of 4 persons (headrights), namely: HENRY TUTTON, Jonathan Gerry, Jonathan Shaw and Sarah Cole." (One wonders if Walter's former boss, Henry Tutton, worked off his indenture or paid him.) NOTE: Elizabeth Chiles maiden name has yet to be proven although "Maury" and "Sanders" are suggested without documentation in the genealogical literature. Their son, William Chiles, does not appear again in Virginia records (He may have died shortly after arriving in Virginia or perhaps he may have returned to England).
     Other land owned by Walter I included:
     1) On 02 May 1638 he received a further grant of 250 acres on the Appomattox River (Land Book I, 551 and 625) This grant was described as "westerly from ye river and easterly, &c, upon the land of Edward Tunstall; 50 acres for his own personal adventure and two hundred for the transportation of four other persons, viz: William Webb, Stephen Gorris, John Kimberlin and Ann Polory".
     2) In March 1638, 613 acres in Charles City (Land Book I, p859).
     3) 813 acres purchased from William Thomas located upon the southerly side the Appomattox River in Charles City County (Land Book II, pp193 & 203); "Cavaliers and Pioneers", by Nugent, Vol. 1, pp186-187, Patent Book, No. 2).
     4) Walter Chiles I also acquired 70 acres of land at Black Point, located near the easternmost tip of Jamestown Island. “Black Poynt” is the long tip of Jamestown Island and was the first point of the island seen by the settlers when they sailed up the James River. Very early there was a road to the Point which wound two and one half miles from James City (later called Jamestown) at the other end of the island. Today, the National Park Service has built a road which circles the island, with a path to Black Point. The land of Walter Chiles encompassed the end of the island, between Pitch and Tar Swamp and Goose Hill, both identified on the island road today. As one looks at a map of Jamestown, the land can be identified as being between Passmore Creek and Kingsmill Creek. (Cavaliers and Pioneers, by Nugent, Vol. 2, p. 112).
     In June 1641, in hope of expanding his business, Chiles joined three other men, Walter Austin, Richard Hoe and Joseph Johnson and "such others as they shall see fit to join them, in petitioning the General Assembly for permission to "undertake the discovery of a new river or unknowne land bearing west, southerly from Appomattake [sic] river." The assembly granted them a license in January 1642 and renewed it in 1643, but the Anglo-Powhatan War of 1644–1646 temporarily halted exploration and closed trading opportunities in the west. They did not attempt to obtain another license.      (Ref: "A History of the Settlement Virginia 1400-1800" by Danny Dixon, 2002)
     In the genealogical literature there is confusion as to whether Walter Chiles I or his son, Walter Chiles II, was referred to as Lieutenant Colonel. Which ever case, it was probably an honorary title. Through hard work and dedication to the colony, Walter I became a wealthy man and was held in high esteem by his fellow colonists. Walter excelled in business and took an active part in the affairs of the Virginia Colony by becoming very politically active. He was elected to the House of Burgesses from Charles City County for the assembly that met on January 12, 1642, and signed a declaration against a revival of the Virginia Company of London. He represented the county again in 1643 and took part in the last meetings of the General Assembly as a unicameral body and the first sessions of the House of Burgesses as a separate branch of the assembly. Further, he subsequently moved to James City County, which he represented in the assemblies of the House of Burgesses that began on November 20, 1645; October 5, 1646; and October 10, 1649. It is possible that his absence from some of the intervening legislative sessions was a consequence of trips to England. He was a member of the Council (Assembly), the upper house, in 1651 where he was elected speaker in 1652 but didn't serve (see explanation below). ["Northumberland Records and Virginia Historical Magazine", Vol. VIII, p197].
     Walter was also a ship owner who regularly traveled between Virginia and England transporting merchandise and immigrants and may have carried messages between the governor and the Crown. After the future king, Charles II, fled England for the Netherlands, Walter probably carried messages between the government in Virginia and the court in exile. On the 24 Jan 1651, Walter I sailed for Rotterdam in his ship, the "Fame of Virginia". On returning from Rotterdam in 1652 and upon reaching Chesapeake Bay, he first put into port in Accomack County, VA. After being for a time in Accomack waters, the ship sailed bound for James City, VA (Jamestown) but was pursued and captured by Capt. Robert Henfield, who held a commission from the "Protectors of the Liberties of England" (Read: Oliver Cromwell). A second English ship, the "Hopeful Adventure", commanded by Captain Richard Husband arrived about 3 hours later and seized the "Fame of Virginia" under the pretext that Chiles had no license from Oliver Cromwell's English Parliament to trade with the Netherlands.
     Chiles immediately applied to the Northampton Co., Virginia authorities for assistance, maintaining that the seizure was illegal. The Court of Northampton concurred and ordered an immediate release of the ship but Capt. Husband ignored the order and sailed away with the vessel (William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. I, pp16,152,153). The economic damage to Chiles was estimated as 2000 pounds sterling, a very large sum. Governor Bennett, on July 5, 1652, sent a note to the House of Burgesses, which happened to be convening the same day, advising them not to vote Lt. Col. Walter Chiles as Speaker of the Assembly due to the incident of his ship being seized because of his involvement in illegal trading with the Netherlands. The Burgesses did not accept the advice of the Governor and the next day by a plurality voted him Speaker of the Assembly. To the honor of Col. Chiles, he at once declined to serve. The House of Burgesses then granted him the ship "Leopoldus of Dunkirk" as a replacement for his seized ship, with all of its equipment, guns, etc. for 400 pounds sterling. The larger "Leopoldus of Dunkirk" had been confiscated for violation of the Navigation Laws. ("William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. I No.17, Hening, Vol. I, pp377-78)
     An interesting aside concerning Lt. Col. Walter Chiles I relates to his residence, "Kemp House", on Jamestown Island. In 1638-9, Richard Kemp, who served as Governor's Councilor and Secretary of the Virginia Colony built his "brick house" on 3 1/2 acres of land. At the time, Governor Sir John Harvey identified Kemp's house as the first brick dwelling at Jamestown and thus "THE FIRST BRICK HOUSE IN AMERICA". Governor Harvey described the house as "the fairest that ever was knowen [sic] in this countrye [sic] for substance and uniformity". Richard Kemp fell on hard times and sold his house to Governor Wyatt in 1641. Around 1644, Governor Sir William Berkeley purchased the property and in March 1649 sold it and its acreage to merchant and Burgess Walter Chiles I for the sum of 26,000 pounds of tobacco. NOTE: See attached transcription of the 1649 deed transferring ownership of "Kempe House" from Governor Sir William Berkeley to Walter Chiles I. Sometime prior to his death in 1653, Walter Chiles I, as noted above, also acquired 70 acres of land at Black Point, located near the easternmost tip of Jamestown Island. When Walter Chiles I died, his widow, Elizabeth, retained a dower interest and remained in the "Kemp House". It isn't known when and where Elizabeth Chiles died. Their son, Walter Chiles II, inherited the estate including the 70 acres of land at Black Point on Jamestown Island from his father. The more than 1600 acres of land that Walter Chiles I owned along the Appomattox River in Charles City County were also part of his estate. There is speculation that Walter's short life was somewhat related to the very unhealthy conditions he experience from residing on Jamestown Island.
     The will of Walter Chiles I has not been found, but it is known that he made a will from a 20 Nov 1673 deed drawn up by Susanna Chiles Wadding, the widow of Walter Chiles II, to sell the "Kemp House" to Col. John Page, the father of Walter Chiles II's first wife, Mary Page. To identify the "Kemp House" that had been bought by her father-in-law, Walter Chiles I, and passed down to her husband, Walter Chiles II, the deed identified Walter Chiles I, the father, as having died "in the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred fifty three". This also confirms that it was Walter Chiles I who originally purchased the house in Jamestown (Ref. Amblar Manuscript No. 24, Library of Congress, Personal Papers, V.S.L., Acc. No.33142).
     The children of Walter and Elizabeth (_____) Chiles I were:
     1) Walter Chiles II b. Abt. 1630 England, d. 1671 Jamestown, Virginia.
     2) William Chiles b. England, d. Unknown
     Walter Chiles I is a qualifying ancestor for membership in the "Jamestowne Society".

per Eakin [1983:4]: "The wife of Walter Chiles, Sr. was elizabeth. So far this writer has been unable to ascertain her maiden name. In a letter written 7 Feb 1978 Mrs. Virginia W. Austin (State Chairman, Genealogical Records Committee, Virginia D. A.
